Avengers beta content

Today’s War Table livestream confirmed a host of content for the betas, including “several single-player missions, as well as a large selection of additional missions that can be played solo with your AI Avengers team or co-op with up to four players.

“In one mission, players take on the role of young Super Hero Kamala Khan and team up with Hulk as they infiltrate an AIM base in the forests of the American Pacific Northwest, hot on the trail of the last known location of JARVIS. Later they take the Quinjet to a remote War Zone in the frozen Russian tundra to uncover SHIELD secrets hidden in a deep underground bunker,” Crystal Dynamics added.

Here’s a full list of the content will be available:

  • The A-Day demo (that we played back at Gamescom 2019) with Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America and Black Widow
  • Single-player missions that include Ms Marvel and Hulk
  • 4-player co-op Warzone missions with Iron Man, Ms Marvel, Black Widow and Hulk
  • 4-player co-op HARM room missions (that unlock bonus content)
